Previews, tributes and rarities: many films remain to be discovered.
Last straight for the 43rd edition of Cinemed which will end this Saturday, October 23 with a highly anticipated film that inspires curiosity. This is the preview of Pink, first feature film by Aurélie Saada, one of the singers of the Brigitte group. She signs the production, the script and the original music.
The director tells the story of a 78-year-old woman who loses her husband and turns his pain into a life drive. The artist was able to bring together a cast of choice: Françoise Fabian in the title role, Aure Atika, who is no longer seen much in the cinema, or even Pascal Elbé. The actor will be present alongside the director during this screening which will follow the awards ceremony in the large Berlioz room at the Corum from 7 p.m.
A little earlier in the day, we can let ourselves be tempted by the preview of the last film.
by Pedro Almodovar at Cinema Diagonal at 4:10 p.m. In Madres Paralelas, the Spanish director surrounds himself with Penelope Cruz to make us follow the trajectory of two women who gave birth on the same day.
As part of the Luis Buñuel retrospective, one of the monuments of the Spanish master is presented: The exterminating angel, 1962 film screened at 4 p.m. at the Corum. A little earlier at 2 p.m., we will be able to see Viridiana, film with which he won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 1961.
A beautiful “Night in Hell”
For early adopters, at 10 a.m. the same day, at the Rabelais center, a screening of short films presenting the works of a duo invited to the festival: Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige is scheduled. Lebanese filmmakers and artists have benefited from a remarkable highlighting of their work with several feature films, some of which will be screened this Friday.
To get to such a morning screening, you will surely not have to have attended the traditional “Night in Hell” the day before at 8 pm at the Utopia cinema. An evening apart from the festival with five films screened, until the end of the night and gifts to be won. Better to leave your preconceptions and your love of good taste at home with Shakespeare’s shitstorm, film by Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger). Dune, seen recently in theaters, has its sandstorm. Here she is, as the title suggests, crap. A rather unique moment in the history of cinema. Also on the menu, the most classic Howls by Joe Dante, a werewolf story with Patrick Macnee (Bowler hat and leather boots), and The three faces of fear, a sketch film by Mario Bava.
Is it an advantage or not to be among the last when you are in competition? Luzzu,
film by Maltese-American filmmaker Alex Camilleri, screened on Friday 22 October at the Salle Pasteur at 8:30 p.m., competes for the Antigone d’Or, the winner of which will be known the next day at 7 p.m. By then, we will have lived beautiful moments of cinema.
